Lewandowski talks about the last meeting with Hoeneß and apologizes to FCB fans

After leaving FC Bayern Munich, Robert Lewandowski spoke about a last meeting with Honorary President Uli Hoeneß. At the same time, after the theater about his move to FC Barcelona, ​​the Pole apologized to the fans.

“He said he always has an open ear for me and I can always call him if I need anything,” Lewandowski said in one sports1-Interview about his conversation with Hoeneß last week on Säbener Straße.

Hoeneß is “a great personality and I am grateful to him, but also to all the other people on the board. It was important to me that nothing negative was left behind when we said goodbye,” added Lewandowski, who switched to Barca in the summer after weeks of theater.

After he had forced his departure with sometimes clear words (“Something died in me”) and thus injured many Bayern fans, Lewandowski now showed remorse: “I know that it hurt a lot of fans. I can understand them and I am responsible for them now just excuse me. For me it was important and necessary at that moment to make it clear that I am ready for a change. In the end we are all only human, right? After twelve years in Germany I was certain: I am done here. ” It was a difficult situation for everyone involved, said the 33-year-old: “We had to find the best solution.”

The longtime Bayern goalgetter emphasized his relationship with Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann: “I never had personal problems with Julian and I never publicly criticized him or his tactics. We talked to each other a lot, the exchange was very close. That You don’t always agree on the pitch, that’s just part of the game. But I’ve never said a bad word about Julian or Julian.” In his eyes, Nagelsmann has great potential and will “certainly win many more titles”.

Lewandowski did not want to see the fact that his move to FC Barcelona could increase his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or as a decisive reason for the move to the Catalans. “Such prices are nice extras, but that’s not why I wanted to go to Spain. Some of what was written there was not true,” he emphasized.

On Sunday, Lewandowski scored his first goal in Barca dress in a friendly against UNAM Pumas (6-0) at the Camp Nou. Watch Lewandowski’s goal debut for Barca here.
